Recently, Pokémon GO
has received a number of updates to help players keep having fun playing in
individual settings. Adjustments have been made to the GO Battle League and
Trainer Battles, and rewards for Daily Bonuses have been increased. The Gift
system has been altered a bit, and you will now find special 1 PokéCoin
bundles in the shop. The number and frequency of changes might seem high, but
the adjustments should be great for Trainers everywhere. So we’ve compiled all the
updates here to bring you up to speed on the current state of the game.
For a limited time, the requirements for the GO Battle
League and Trainer Battles with friends have been altered. From now until
Monday, April 13, 2020, the walking and PokéCoin requirements to unlock sets of
battles in the GO Battle League have been removed.
Likewise, from now until Friday, May 1, 2020, the Friendship
level requirement for Trainer Battles with friends has been lowered. You can
now send battle invites to Trainers who are your Good Friends or Great Friends the
same as you can to your Ultra Friends and Best Friends.
Players will now earn three times the usual Stardust and XP
for the first Pokémon caught each day, and you can activate a Star Piece and a
Lucky Egg to increase your rewards even more. Plus, you can now carry up to 20
Gifts in your inventory and open up to 30 Gifts each day. Gifts now contain
more Poké Balls, which should help you stock up.
Another great way to stock up on goods is to take advantage
of the 1 PokéCoin bundles in the shop. Each week, the shop will stock a
new special, one-time purchase of handy items for the cost of 1 PokéCoin. Each
week’s bundle is only available until the next week begins, though, so if you
want what’s on offer, be sure to get it while you still can. One previous 1 PokéCoin
bundle included 30 Incense, and another had 100 Poké Balls, so check back each
week to see what new items are available.
It’s now easier to keep track of Pokémon GO’s ongoing events,
bonuses, and more with the new Today View feature. Found in the same area as
your Field Research and Special Research tabs, the Today View has sections
devoted to events that are currently running in the game as well as upcoming
events, a list of Pokémon you currently have in Gyms, and your Daily PokéStop
Spin and Daily Pokémon Catch Streaks.
Of course, all mentioned dates and feature adjustments are
subject to change. Check Pokemon.com
